BMI View: A number of sectors are expected to show healthy growth in Oman's construction industry, withtransport infrastructure in particular expected to make strong gains over the medium term. The country'sflagship railway network project will attract major investment and the road network is subject to ongoingimprovement and expansion projects. Likewise, rising demand for electricity and water will also ensurecontinued investment in new utilities capacity, particularly as the government proceeds with plans toenhance the use of public-private partnerships. Residential and non-residential construction is alsoexpected to post positive growth, supported by a growing tourism industry and popular support for varioussocial infrastructure projects. We do note, however, that falling oil revenues have the potential to disruptproject timelines.

Latest Updates And Structural Trends

- Oman's construction industry is expected to see real growth in value of 3.4% in 2016, to USD5.7bn.Although a relatively small market compared to others in the region (such as Saudi Arabia and the UnitedArab Emirates), Oman's construction sector benefits from high levels of government support andconstruction accounts for a significant portion of GDP.

- Improving the country's transport sector remains a key focus of the Omani administration. Transport andCommunications Minister Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Salim Al Futaisi noted in a May 2016 reportthat, as well as investing billions in physical infrastructure, Oman is also liberalising the investment sideto allow private sector involvement in transport and logistics, with an aim to improving competition anddriving modernisation.

- In residential and non-residential construction, the development of Oman's tourism industry is a majordriver of growth. Oman has identified 14 areas in the country to be developed as tourism destinationsover the next 25 years and the Ministry of Tourism expects some USD35bn to be invested in the tourismsector - up to 80% of which will come from private investors.
